More expensive than World War II

by a trillion dollars. Also more costly than the Vietnam War, NASA’s expenditures all-time, the Korean War, Iraq, The New Deal and so on combined. What costs this much, you ask?

Our credit bailout, so far. At least $4.6165 trillion so far. Bloomberg calculates it at $7.76 trillion, or $24,000 for every man, woman and child in the country.

It could pay off more than half the country’s mortgages.

And we’re only getting started. It may not even work. Blame only takes you so far, but will even one person go to jail for this?
